I find it amusing that in the Washington Post, Frank Ahrens registers another complaint about blogs spreading misinformation even as The Post and almost all of big media are trying to get over the hangover of spreading misinformation in West Virginia. And what Ahrens is complaining about — that Wal-Mart made some offensive links among DVD pitches — wasn’t misinformation so much as misinterpretation and this anti-Wal-Mart site carries the comany’s side.
Can we just stipulate that lots of big media guys don’t like blogs? And we can stipulate that lots of bloggers don’t like big media. We know it already. Having established that, now what?
